Mon. 12.01pm.
The McGovern Directional Drilling team commences its 2011 Intermediate Championship campaign in the Abbey Park, Elphin on Sunday next at 1pm when they face St Dominick’s. The Club asks all its loyal supporters to travel to Elphin to get behind the lads. Best wishes to the players and the management. Every year Boyle starts off as serious contenders for the Intermediate C’Ship. I believe that, with the young talent emerging, Boyle should be a force at the high levels for the next decade. Whether that begins on Sunday is the challenge. They have prepared well and have some good results from the Senior League but St. Dominick’s are always a difficult side and are recent Intermediate champions. It seems a pit that there are so many under-age fixtures clashing (below) with this important senior fixture but I suppose that is almost inevitable. It will engage people who would certainly have gone to Elphin.
The U12 teams lost both of their Division 1 and Division 4 league games to Roscommon Gaels in Lisnamult on Sunday. Both teams are scheduled for action again on Sunday next when they make the long and early journey to Knockcroghery to play St Dominick’s. Their games are at 11.30am and at 12.45pm.
The U14s’ had a good win over Strokestown on Thursday. They will play St Ciaran’s in Fuerty on this Thursday at 7pm.
The U16s’ will play Castlerea on Sunday next at 3.30 in the Abbey Park in the League semi-final. Support is requested for this important game.
The minors beat Roscommon Gaels on Sunday week last but they lost to Castlerea on Sunday in the Division 1 League. Theyy will have no further outings until after the completion of the Leaving and Junior Cert exams.
The Club extends its good wishes for a speedy recovery to two prominent underage players Patrick Goldrick and Conor Tivnan who suffered injuries in the past week.

The Cooney Motors/ Cooneys Centra junior team is still awaiting news of its next fixture. Well done to Cian Smith who was our only representative on the Roascommon Juniors who lost out narrowly to Mayo in the Connacht Championship on Friday evening last.
The Club extends its sympathy to the Smith Family on the death of George Smith in Birr, and to the Cox and Mulhern families Boyle on the death of Mary Mulhern, nee Cox in Ballina.
The Club encourages its underage members to participate in the Boyle Community Games Athletics Sports Evening in the College Field starting at 4.30pm on this Saturday 14th May.
Didn’t St. Michael’s do well with their scrap metal collection fundraiser….€42, 000 plus they made. I wonder would anyone in Boyle GAA head that effort up. It would be a short sharp campaign. Location for deposit of material would be one of the issues of course. (T.C.).
